The state-run TV company released the video where Ukrainian troops repel enemy attacks in Avdiivka, Donetsk region, on April 1. At about 9 a.m., militants fired mortars to shell Ukrainian emplacements in this area.
According to ATO Staff, the only reason the mercenaries use the weaponry banned by Minsk agreements is to provoke Ukrainian troops to return fire. Their final goal is to see that Ukrainian artillery, tanks and mortars return to the frontline and thus show that the Armed Forces allegedly escalate the conflict in Donbas.
Currently, Ukrainian soldiers only return fire from small arms and grenade launchers, since the use of heavy weapons is prohibited by Minsk agreements.
The video below belongs to the Military TV of Ukraine.
